Financial Analysis

HARRIS CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased, representing an increase to the bottom line. HARRIS CORP has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.69 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 11.81% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.
